When purchasing a used vehicle, dependability becomes an even more important factor for car shoppers, and according to J.D. Power and Associates, there is no auto brand as dependable as Lexus. Analyzing vehicles from the 2011 model year, the recently released J.D. Power 2014 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) found that, on average, Lexus models experienced the fewest problems per 100 vehicles (PP100), leading the auto industry for the third straight year.
In addition to its win for top overall brand, four of Lexus’ models led their respective segments in the 2014 VDS, including the 2011 Lexus RX for Midsize Premium CUV, the 2011 Lexus ES for Compact Premium Car, the 2011 Lexus GS for Midsize Premium Car and the 2011 Lexus LS for Large Premium Car. J.D. Power surveyed more than 41,000 vehicle owners from October to December of 2013 after they had spent three years with their rides, covering 202 potential problems experienced during the past 12 months.
“In recent years it’s become more difficult to determine which vehicles are the most reliable because higher-quality models are being built across the industry, but Lexus continues to be a mainstay at the top,” said Howard Wilner, president of AutoMax Preowned, a Greater Boston used car dealer with locations in Framingham and Marlborough. “A luxury vehicle is a significant investment, so you expect it to serve you well for years, but that’s not always the case. You know what you’re getting with a pre-owned Lexus, though, and the J.D. Power survey confirms the brand’s reliability down the road.”
While Lexus was far ahead of other brands with its 68 PP100 score, another luxury marque, Mercedes-Benz, came in second place in the 2014 VDS with its rating of 104 PP100. On the other hand, General Motors Co. led all automakers with the most individual segment wins, including honors for the 2011 Buick Lucerne, Cadillac DTS, Cadillac Escalade, Chevy Camaro, Chevy Volt, GMC Sierra HD, GMC Sierra LD and GMC Yukon.
